James Snelus

My main area of work involves financial matters between divorcing couples or separating cohabitees. I will be involved throughout the divorce process, from early advice on reaching a settlement after a relationship breakdown to representing a client throughout the Court process.

My approach

My aim is to ensure the client understands what is happening and feels part of the process. Divorce and Court proceedings can be bewildering. I aim to make things as simple as possible and give clear advice so the client is able to make informed decisions about their case. Once those decisions are taken and the objectives clear, I do my best to achieve them in Court.

What my clients say

Client in a child contact case, Nottingham: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for yesterday. I was impressed by your skill and ability to articulate the essence of the issues and draw out the relevant facts very effectively. I appreciate that this is your job but your ability to balance this whilst maintaining a very approachable and 'down to earth' manner that helped to put me at ease, on what was an emotionally stressful day is not something that I think many people could achieve."
